The 5 O’clock Shadow: Friday November 20, 2020

Ohhhh, another one I bet you didn’t know was a cover, Friday challenge.

The original artist’s album, which included the original version of this song, was rejected by 24 record labels. In the end though, they were able to quit their day jobs because of the royalties they earned from the cover/shadow version.

The Shadow version was actually released months prior to the original being released, because the original artist had no major backing and had to self-release the album.

In 2008 The Shadow artist released an EP which included their version of the song, five mixes of the song (including a Diplo mix), and the original version.

There is a slight difference between the original artist’s and The Shadow artist’s spelling of the title of the song.

The song has a hypnotizing bass line.
